Quality title with major multichannel sound issues
on 24 August 2009
As to be expected from Monolith Productions, the studio which created this game, the game and sound design and writing are excellent. The visuals may look dated, but the game holds up, even more than three years after the original PC game, of which this is a port, was published.
There is one major caveat, though. The 5.1 multichannel sound mix often collapses, mapping the rear channel sounds to the front channels, and making very soft sounds come out a lot louder than they should appear. Taken together, these issues make it impossible to tell whether the bad guys are sneaking around somewhere behind you, or hidden in the shadows in front of you.
